Browsing history: Many UK adults don’t know it’s visible to third parties

Nearly half of UK adults don’t know their browsing history is visible to third parties

Avast recently conducted research that discovered misconceptions about privacy protection while browsing the web. 2 in 5 Brits (43%) don’t know their browsing history could be used to scam them financially, and 44% aren’t aware that it can be sold legally to third parties for the purpose of targeting them with ads.
